10 of '11 - My Favorite Records from this Year
10. Gloom - Job for a Cowboy (Metal Blade Records)
9. Chaos of Forms - Revocation (Relapse Records)
"Easily one of the best metal records of 2011" I concluded in my August review and I still stand by my original description: dumbfuckingfoundingly good.
8. Unto the Locust - Machine Head (Roadrunner Records)
Still playing this one as recently as yesterday, Unto the Locust remains a refreshingly simple reminder of why I fell in love with Machine Head way back when (Burn My Eyes) and again (Through the Ashes of Empires) and again (The Blackening). Read my original review here.
7. Surtur Rising - Amon Amarth (Metal Blade Records)
6. Into the Wild - Uriah Heep (Frontiers Records)
3. The Condemned - Dismemberment (self-released)
2. Time is Up - Havok (Candlelight Records)
1. Kill on Command - Jungle Rot (Victory Records)
